THATCHER – Eastern Arizona College’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is offering a free seminar, “Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map with Google,” on Thursday, Sept. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the High Tech Center, Room #116.
“Four out of five consumers use search engines to find local information nearby, yet only 37% of businesses have claimed their listing on a search engine,” Emily Harris, Manager of Google’s Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map Program, said. “Small businesses are the engine of local economies and when they flourish their communities do as well.”
To encourage this growth, SBDC has joined with Google to help local businesses get online and on the map because businesses that are online grow 40% faster than those that aren’t.
EAC’s SBDC invites anyone who is interested to attend the workshop. Free materials for all attendees will be provided by Google, including free drawings for shirts, bags and other swag.
